    Aby Watson

    Ditch uniformity and find joy in your own dancing and moving in a playful, celebratory online workshop for all ages, bodies and minds.

    A neurodivergent-led space with dancing and music, DYSCO isn't about being a 'good' or 'bad' dancer, and there’s no teacher to follow.

    DYSCO embraces different ways of moving and believes all dancing is good when it feels good!

    DYSCO's resident DJ, DJ DYSCOURSE (aka dance artist Aby Watson), leads the dance party.

    For each track played from her curated playlist, she offers a different invitation to carry into your boogie.

    All invitations are simple, relaxed and can be approached in any way that works best for you.

    Whether you're dressed in comfy clothes or party clobber, get ready to get down in this virtual, intergenerational and celebratory DYSCO!

    Aby Watson is a dyspraxic, dyslexic and ADHD dance artist, performer and researcher, whose performance work marries movement, choreography, text, action and autobiography.

    With a vibrant neurodiverse energy, her work deals with concepts of deskilling, failure, feminism and difference, and has been seen at venues across the UK and internationally.

    She founded and chairs the Scottish Neurodiverse Performance Network, a new network of Scotland-based neurodivergent artists who work in performance.
